Arts Cinema StageWeekend

[Exhibition] Studiolo by Jean Jullien

(B2) If you have not yet seen the exhibition by the French graphic artist Jean Jullien at Mima, the Brussels urban arts museum, located in a rapidly reconverting district of Molenbeek on the banks of the Brussels Canal. Run there.

This " first personal museum exhibition » in Europe is playing overtime: until January 7. It combines intimate paintings by the artist, naturalistic paintings with comments and reflections painted directly on the walls. The representations of the sea, the beaches, the forests seem so realistic that one can expect at any moment to be surprised by a wave or bird coming out of the painting.

At the bend of the corridors, at the very top almost at the museum's dovecote, you can discover a giant fresco, presenting on a semi-circle, a shortcut of the history of recent wars, from antiquity to current affairs, including the Middle Age. Uplifting
